Our absolute favourite winery in the Okanagan

A bit on the pricey side, this winery offers distinct wines that stand apart from other Summerland wineries. The muscat riesling, the Syrah Rose and some of the Syrah vintages have been simply outstanding. A small tasting room offers one-on-one intimate tasting experience. Don't miss this one!

Stopped by in a whim and so glad we did. Quiet and quaint. Refurbished home nestled among the orchard trees. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Ensemble Blanc has got to be my ultimate favourite wine now; fabulous!! Need to go back a pick up a case (or two 😉).

We spent the afternoon in the area, this was our least favorite. We much preferred Heaven's Gate, Thornhaven & Sonoran. All of these three we thought had better wine, better wine prices, and no tasting fee.

Firstly, let me say that I definitely agree that my colleagues in Summerland do make excellent wines. And we are proud to be part of the Bottleneck Drive group. As of the comment about charging tasting fees: This review is the ultimate proof that our decision to charge for tasting was and is our best and smartest decision we have... More

This was our first visit to silk scarf and we walked out after a tasting facilitated by the owner Ronie that was friendly and informative and engaging. The wines are beautiful and will become our regular stop on visits to the Sumerland Penticton area. Nice job. Thanks Silkscarf.

We've been making Silkscarf winery a "must-stop" anytime we are in the Okanagan valley, this trip in early May was no exception. The always warm reception and welcoming smile is just the begining of tasting some of the best wines the Okanagan has to offer. Roie and Ruth are gracious hosts and have a passion in describing their fabulous wines.... More

Enjoyed our visit with Ruth and Roie. Very knowledgeable and are willing to share their information and stories. Their wines are amazing. Good to drink now but will be exceptional if you let them age for a year or two. We did buy several bottles, attached to each is a 'when to open' note! In fact I bought a bottle... More

We stopped at silk scarf on our way to Dirty Laundry. The winery is really small, but the friendliness of the owners made up for that. They came right over and indulged us in a nice tasting. Try the cherry port, it's fantastic!

I really enjoyed the wines at Silkscarf - they have a fantastic Riesling Muscat and a lovely cherry wine. The owners were really nice as well.
